Ethical food brands: the ones to look out for

These ethical food brands are paving the way for the industry, saving the world one bite at a time. Help them make a difference! By swapping your usual food choices for organic, ethical alternatives, you could truly make a positive impact on the world.

Buzzing with goodness

Lucy Bee has taken pride in their ethical standards ever since the very beginning. All of Lucy Bee’s products have been made using Fairtrade ingredients, including their coconut oil, cinnamon powder and coconut flour. Their original coconut oil was sourced from the Philippines. However, they now also use oil from the Solomon Islands and coconut oil from Sri Lanka. All of their oils are unrefined, Fairtrade and organic. Lucy Bee is currently also supporting the Little Blossoms Project. To donate to this worthy cause, all you need to do is purchase a Lucy Bee product from Amazon. It’s as simple as that!

Angelic taste

The delicious taste of their raw chocolate isn’t the only angelic thing about Raw Halo. The start-up brand launched in 2015 in an effort to create a good quality raw chocolate that didn’t contain a host of unhealthy ingredients. The nutrients in the original cacao beans don’t go to waste because their raw chocolate is minimally processed. This is why we love it so much – because it tastes good and is full of vitamins and minerals. Raw Halo is just one example of many ethical food brands who are committed to creating high quality produce.

When life gives you lemons…

… make Lemonaid! Lemonaid and ChariTea have teamed up to change the world one drink at a time. Every bottle sold supports the Lemonaid and ChariTea Foundation. Furthermore, they use Fairtrade ingredients to make each drink. The scheme supports development projects in Asia, Africa and Latin America. They help disadvantaged areas in a number of different ways by fighting child labour, environmental pollution and human rights abuses.

Time for tea

A small sip of tea can make a bigger difference than you realise. Making tasty tea isn’t the only thing on Pukka’s agenda. Not only do Pukka source 100 per cent organic ingredients in order to reduce their carbon footprint, but they also donate funds to environmental charities. In 2016 alone they raised $520,000 for worthy causes. They also produce a variety of wholesome teas to boost your wellbeing. One of our personal favourites has to be their Detox tea, which is a perfect combination of organic aniseed, fennel and cardamom.

Fight food waste

Let’s face it – we’re all guilty of producing large amounts of food waste. We do it without even realising it, carelessly forgetting to recycle our food wrappers and chucking away excess food. That’s where Snact come in, as they’ve been creating sustainable food snacks to tackle the UK’s food waste ever since 2013. Their range contains a collection of yummy snacks, including their flavoursome fruit jerky and healthy fruit bars.
